William Cordova

Miami, May 12, 2014 - Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Museum of Art + Design (MOAD) will present artist and MDC alumnus William Cordova’s latest project in the final exhibition of the premiere season of swing/SPACE/ Miami at its National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower. An opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, May 22, from 6 – 8 p.m.  The exhibition will run through July 12 and is free and open to the public.

ceiba: reconsidering ephemeral spaces is a project that focuses on temporality and the ability to capture past and present moments that at times may not seem to be but are indeed related to the collective human experience. With this project Cordova threads, constructs and overlaps multiple narratives fused together to propose alternative perspectives with the goal of gaining a new one that can allow for a reconsideration of the known physical and psychological terrain.

Cordova was born in Lima, Peru, and earned his Master of Fine Arts from Yale University in 2004. He has participated in multiple artist residencies, including Artspace, San Antonio, Texas; The Core Program, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Studio Museum, Harlem, N.Y. Cordova has presented numerous solo exhibitions throughout the United States and internationally, and has participated in group exhibitions at MoMA and PS1 in New York City and the Menil Collection in Houston. He was also included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City.

swing/SPACE/miami is MOAD’s focused exhibition series featuring the work of distinguished Miami Dade College and New World School of the Arts alumni. The ongoing exhibition series presents five solo or group exhibitions per year, providing a platform to re-engage former alumni and foster opportunities with the community of young and emerging artists throughout South Florida. This exhibition is presented in partnership with the Miami Dade College Office of Alumni Affairs.
